Using Our Disneyland Paris 2022 Pricing Calendar

Our Disneyland Paris pricing calendar is based on the average price of a 3 night stay booked at least 6 months in advance.

Disney’s pricing structure works on a supply and demand scale. Each hotel starts off selling rooms at their lowest price. When rooms are sold, it reduces the supply so the prices start to go up. There is no such thing as a last minute deal at Disneyland Paris. The best prices are for those who book in advance. For example, it could be more expensive to book a last minute trip in off-season compared to booking a stay a year in advance during high season.

Disneyland Paris Crowds & Prices in January

Overall, January is the quietest and cheapest month of the year. However, this is for a good reason. The weather can be very cold with chances of rain and snow. Disney also takes advantage of the low crowds to do maintenance and refurbishment on some of it’s most popular attractions. Many of the shows are also not running too. This is why January is one of the cheapest times to visit Disneyland Paris.

1st – 6th January

It’s the end of the busy Christmas & New Years celebrations. 5th is also the Three Kings Festival

Weekdays

One of the quietest times of the year to visit. Queues are usually under 15 minutes for most attractions

The first few weekends may still be busy, but as the month goes on, the parks are lovely and quiet

Disneyland Paris Crowds & Prices in February

France is split into 3 different regions for the school holidays and have 2 weeks per region. Generally, the first zone will start in mid-February around the same time as British schools are starting to breakup. For a lot of French families, the February half term is all about skiing which helps keep the crowds reasonably low in the parks.

It’s usually the cheapest half term to visit Disneyland Paris, but keep in mind the parks are not open as late, it can be cold and some rides may be closed for refurbishment. Shows such as Mickey & The Magician are also likely to not be running too.

Beginning of February

Similar to January, expect low crowds and low prices

School Holidays

French school holidays run from around 12th February all the way through February

Weekends

Busier than during the week, but still much quieter than other school holidays

Disneyland Paris Crowds & Prices in March

It’s the last month of the Winter pricing and the weather is usually starting to get better. This makes March a great time to visit Disneyland Paris for those with preschoolers or no kids.

In 2022, the resort will start it’s 30th anniversary celebrations on 6th March too so expect the parks to be busy around this date.

Weekdays

French school holidays usually run over into the first week of March

Weekends

Disneyland Paris Crowds & Prices in May

May is probably the best half term to visit Disneyland Paris. French schools are not off at the same time which helps keep the crowds and prices low. Plus, the Disneyland Park stays open later too. As the sun generally sets between 9pm and 9.40pm, the park needs to stay open later for the nightly performance of Disney Illuminations (fireworks). Our Disneyland Paris crowd calendar shows May is a great time to visit.

October sees the start of Disney’s Halloween season. This is one of the busiest and most expensive times to visit Disneyland Paris. The Halloween season is amazing. However, if it’s your first time or you’re visiting with younger children, I wouldn’t recommend going during October.

Also, French companies privatise the parks on selected evenings, usually a Friday and Monday. This makes the parks very busy during the day from around noon as people start to arrive for their Christmas parties.
